Michigan State’s Aaron Henry has decided to test the NBA Draft waters this offseason, according to a report from the Detroit Free Press.
Chris Solari reported on Monday that Henry will declare for the NBA Draft but will keep his college eligibility open by not signing with an agent. He’s the second Spartan from the 2019-20 team to declare for the draft, along with Xavier Tillman Sr. He will also keep the option to return to East Lansing available.
Henry averaged 10.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.9 assists for the Spartans last season, helping lead the team to a third-straight B1G regular season title. He earned starts in 29 of the team’s 30 contests.
Players who declare for the NBA Draft but plan to retain college eligibility must make a final decision by June 3. If a player does not withdraw his name by that date, he will not be permitted to return to school to play college basketball.
Michigan State was 22-9 last season with a 14-6 mark in the B1G, good enough to tie Maryland and Wisconsin for a share of the regular season conference crown.
